Where to place the desk if you don’t have a home-office?

0 11

Whether you are using (or will be using) your desk for entertainment or work, you have to take extra care when you are choosing the layout. Positioning is the most important issue and here are some rules to help you with that:

1. Consider sunlight

The sun streaming trough your windows is beautiful, but not when it gets in your eyes, especially in periods of high intensity. According to the doctors, when you are sitting at your computer, the sun should not be in the front or rear, but rather streaming from your left or right. Also, choosing a lateral source of natural lighting, not only will you ensure good visibility and the comfort of your eyes, but you won’t have distorted colors on your monitor. That’s pretty important for people who rely on this, like designers.

2. Consider what your activities will be

If you have a powerful sound system, then positions the computer so you can listen to music in optimal conditions. The best place would certainly be near the couch.

If you use the monitor to watch movies or concerts, then look for a comfortable zone. The best position being close to the TV, so you don’t have to change your “sitting habits”.

If you use the monitor to watch movies or concerts, then look for a safe comfortable, the best position being close to the TV, not to change your usual place of viewing.

When you work from home, the most convenient is to have the desk positioned in a quiet area, with little outside access and as far away as possible from any temptations (like the video games console).

3. Avoid dust and moisture

Extreme temperatures, dust and fumes can damage your computer components. If your bathroom or kitchen doors stay open most of the time, avoid placing the computer in a lobby/office communicating with these rooms.

If you place it near a window, you should remember to close the blinds or drapes especially during midday when the sun’s rays are very strong.

4. Consider any other people who will have access.

If you share your computer with other family members, then choose a neutral zone that does not restrict access to anyone, nor does it cause discomfort to others. You can set up a special room for this purpose, if your apartment or house is spacious enough
If your home is rather small, the living room might be the best place.
